    People say they like the sound and look of my Ibanez and whatnot but when I let them get a closer look at it they see the "Made in Indonesia" on the back of the headstock and the call me a loser and tell me that all the good basses are coming out of China these days. So anyways I've been reading all the threads about changing the name on the headstock of basses and the idea smacked me square on top of my head to change the label on the back of my bass to say "Made in China" instead of "Made in Indonesia". I think people will like me more if I did. What do you think? :help:

    Made in Indonesia.. SR Premium serie? In that case, just leave the MII logo on it ;) Don't care what people say about your gear, you like it and that's it ;) Would you sell your car or house if people don't like it? Of course not! So the same for your bass : Be proud on it and leave the MII logo on it :)
  7. Yeah, made in china labels are the best labels for metal, it's all in the labels man..

    You are kidding right? This is a joke, yes? If not, it shows how dumb some people can be - a little knowledge is a dangerous thing, yes?

    I does not matter WHERE in the world anything is made any more. All such manufacturing is totally automated with the latest equipment, probably from Japan and Germany. The new Squiers come from Indonesia, and they are better than the MIM products and perhaps better than some MIA. Manufacturers are moving out of China since the labor and real estate there is getting to be too expensive, and when they do, they set up a new, state-of-the-art factory, and the product is even better than before (like the Squiers).

    All that is important is the name on the headstock. If it is a good reliable company, they are going to be sure that the product is good, no matter where it is made.

    Yes I'm kidding but just because I'm kidding doesn't mean that I'm not also dumb. :smug:

    Great thread! LOLOL!

    I like Pilgrims Uranus comment and the Made comment.

    How about Made by Elves in a Hollow Tree.

    I suggest a sticker that reads "Not Of This World". That'll cover it.
